The urban population is 69,875 (as of 2009.) The mayor is Vahap Akay (Reis)(CHP).HistoryUntil the 1800s this was a village called 'Türbedere'. 'Türbe' is the Turkish for 'tomb' and the village took its name from the tomb of the eldest son of sultan Bayezid I, Süleyman Çelebi, who was murdered here in 1410 when fleeing from his brothers during the Ottoman Interregnum. The tomb was destroyed by Bulgarian troops when they occupied the town for nine months during the war for Bulgarian Independence in 1912.Çerkezköy was founded as a settlement for refugees from the Caucasus following the Russo-Turkish War of 1877-1878 ('Çerkez' being the Turkish pronunciation of 'Circassian'). Soon after, following the independence of Bulgaria from the Ottoman Empire further waves of refugees from Bulgaria came to replace the Caucasians and Çerkezköy was designated as a municipality (belediye in Turkish) in 1911. It was became township in Saray district in 1922 and the district in 1938.Our Turkey trip itinerary builder allows you to schedule your trip to Cerkezkoy, learn about its attractions, and find out about where else to go during your holiday.
